Yeah I was pretty surprised too when I saw that!
I was on my to Mosport on Sunday when I noticed it. I was going to my Dad's house to pick him up and the passenger rear was making a really weird noise. I took a look underneath and everything seemed okay. I didn't bother looking in the trunk because I put a bunch of stuff in there before I left and hadn't noticed anything. I ended up not taking the car because I knew something was wrong.
When I got home I opened the trunk again and that's when I saw the top of the shock sticking through the trunk liner!
What I'm wondering is if that happened because the suspension is too stiff for stock shock mounts, or it is just because they're old?
If I replace them with stock ones will this just happen again?
